White Rose Scholarship

Value: $30,000 (non-renewable)

Over the years, the white rose has become the symbol of Polytechnique Montréal’s commemorative activities. Therefore, to mark the 25th anniversary of the events of December 6, 1989, which cost the lives of 14 young women and injured several others, Polytechnique created the Order of the White Rose in tribute to the victims as well as the wounded, the families, the faculty members, the employees and the students who were forever affected by the tragedy.

Eligibility:

  • Application Form
  • a woman
  • a Canadian citizen or permanent resident
  • a graduate of an engineering program at a Canadian university and have completed her bachelor's degree in December 2020, or be in the process of completing it in May or August 2021
  • Enrolled, or in the process of enrolling, in a graduate studies program in engineering (master’s or PhD) to begin the year after receiving her bachelor’s degree.

Internal McGill deadline: June 1, 2021 (All inquiries & applications can be sent to: Lori.Hurdle [at] mcgill.ca)
